Great place to visit for all your shopping and visiting restaurants. You will get hassled but if you ignore them they'll leave you be. Found that the best time to go was in the evening because there's a lot more going on.

Na'ama bay is an interesting place. There are some lovely restaurants which aren't over priced in the slightest and the shopping for souvenirs, handbags, watches and more is brilliant! The thing that lets it down is the hassle that you get from the locals but its Egypt so what do you expect? apart from that great place for an evening... More

We went first in the evening and then a few days later in the afternoon. Be prepared for a lot of hassle especially at night. I preferred the daytime as the smell of so many Shish pipes made me light headed. I was surprised after so much hassle at night how much we were allowed to browse in the day... More

Too busy for my liking, too much hustle/bustle and bargaining. Be prepared to say NO if you need to, the locals don't know when to stop !

Na'ama Bay is a place full of cafes, restaurants and bars. You can also buy lots of souvenirs here. However, you gotta stay careful and assertive, otherwise the locals will talk you into buying stuff that you don't necessarily need. Those who feel overwhelmed by Egyptian culture will probably be happy to find out that apart from restaurants with Egyptian... More

Na'ama bay is good for a night out - however it is expensive in the bars. The shops are open all hours and there is always a lot of hassle to buy. I much prefer Nabq bay which is not bar away in a taxi and it has all the great things that Na'ama does but it is on a... More

We visited last year and the harassment from shop owners was unbearable. They have however been advised by the police and government to back off hassling tourists and it was noticeable. It made the trip there much more bearable and pleasant.
